Yes, we know it was only the Orioles.

But when your starter is out of the game after just two innings, and you're already down 6-0 heading into the bottom of the third, you have to figure that if the Red Sox are going to win this game, it's going to be a slugfest.

The slugfest was all one-sided as Boston put up 13 unanswered runs from the third through the eighth innings in a 13-7 romp over Baltimore to sweep the three-game series.

Nathan Eovaldi started for the Red Sox and got into early trouble by allowing a three-run homer in the top of the first inning and then another pair of runs in the second.

Darwinzon Hernandez allowed a run in the third and then Alex Cora's bullpen put up five scoreless innings as the Red Sox offense went to work.

Rafael Devers (pictured) had a ridiculous 4-for-5 performance with two doubles, a home run, and four runs batted in. J.D. Martinez countered with three hits in his five at bats and a pair of RBI's.

Mitch Moreland got into the act with three hits after entering the game as a pinch hitter.

The Red Sox are off Monday before a two-game set with the Phillies at Fenway and the conclusion of the August 7 suspended game against the Royals on Thursday.
